ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: Safe drinking water is a strong constraint to the attainment of Millennium Development Goals by 2020. The water supply coverage of 38.3% of the total population corresponds to 45 litres per person and an average supply period of 3.5 hours daily. This further explains the degree of water-stress in Ikare. Annual non-revenue of 18.3% represented $6.2 million USD which was lost to physical water loss, thus leading to gradual increase in operation ratio value of 1.05. Chlorination water treatment is cost effective for large water scheme than ultraviolent (UV) with a price index of $ 0.01 per 1m3 of water. The predicted cost for plant with 5 million m3 capacity. Increasing water supply coverage requires the reduction of non-revenue water and creates effective tariff system.
